A+ Zombie Horror
I love a good zombie story and I love a story set in Antarctica so this book was a winner for me right off the bat. That said, even though the content is my favorite, this story really succeeds in being action packed and scare inducing. I thought the characters were well written, people died at a good rate and the tension never lowered throughout.
Kevin Pierce is one of my top three favorite narrators on Audible. I would listen to anything he reads, his performance is always pitch perfect and incredibly satisfying. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes an action/zombie thriller! It's a great one. I do hope there is a sequel as 'Erebus' did end on a cliff hanger and I want to hear more!
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Great Story, Missing Character Building
3.75 out of 5 stars
Imagine being at the edge of the world when the apocalypse breaks out. That’s what happened to the researchers and doctors on Antartica when they happen to accidentally bring to life an age-old organism that is bound to taking over.
I think my favorite thing about this book was the setting. I love when a book is set somewhere that feels out of the ordinary. An outbreak among researchers in Antartica is something that no one would know about unless they either brought it home with them or they all died and never made it back. That fascinates me and I thought that the setting of the book really played a character, too.
The characters weren’t explained too well and that made loving or losing them a little easier. I was a little worried since Bird didn’t go into a ton of detail about anyone that we were going to have a horror-like story where no one makes it out alive.
If I could change anything about the book I would just spend a little more time introducing some of the characters and giving the reader a reason to like them (and in turn, root for them to make it.) The only character that I found myself rooting for was the Russian and it was because he gave a lot more of his backstory than any other character.
The organism/infection/disease was pretty good and reminded me a bit of The Genius Plague that I just finished. I can’t really get into much detail about it without ruining the story but it felt unique compared to most “zombie-like” stories.
Overall, I thought that Erebus had a nice plot but was missing some character development. A solid 3.5 to 4 book that I did enjoy reading.
I was voluntarily provided with a copy of this audiobook - it has not affected my review in any way.
